Pete Buttigieg surges and Elizabeth Warren crashes in New Hampshire poll

He will now join Biden, the former IN mayor Pete Buttigieg, and the USA senators Amy Klobuchar, Sanders and Warren at Drake University IN Des Moines, Iowa, on Tuesday for the first debate of the 2020 election year and the the last before voting begins IN Iowa.

While the poll counts toward qualification in the January 14 Democratic presidential debate, it does not push any of the candidates who have not yet qualified - including entrepreneur Andrew Yang, businessman Tom Steyer, New Jersey Sen.

Former Vice President Joe Biden is in a three-way statistical dead heat with former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Independent Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders in the latest polls of early Democratic primary states New Hampshire and Iowa, with Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren just off the lead but within the margin of error.

Political pundits pointed to Steyer's heavy spending in the two states for the surge. "To the extent that New Hampshire voters could take some cues from Iowa, it's also worth keeping an eye on lower polling candidates like Klobuchar if any of the leading contenders stumble in the earlier Iowa contest".

Steyer hit the requirement of getting 225,000 unique donations with at least 1,000 each coming from 20 states.

Ahead of a Friday deadline to qualify for next week's debate, the survey did not help candidates like Mr. Fourteen total Democrats are still running though.

This result follows a CBS News poll this week that showed Sanders and Biden on top in New Hampshire with 27 and 25 percent, respectively, and Warren in third at 18 percent.

The ever-shrinking debate stage should offer more time for candidates to engage with each other and offer substantive responses, with less than three weeks to go until the Iowa caucuses on February 3.

And Steyer, who launched his 2020 campaign in July, wants to adequately fund agencies that foster legal immigration, which he argues have seen their budgets shrink as previous administrations poured more federal money into border enforcement. He has instead been focusing his attention on the more delegate-rich states that will vote on Super Tuesday on March 3.
